Finally got into Totto Ramen | New York, United States | Yes ladies and gentleman, after month and month of wait, I finally made it at this basic but high demand Ramen shack in Hell’s Kitchen, #NewYork City. The verdict is …” has been totally worth the wait…”. I would say, one of the best Noodle Ramen I have had in New York, therefore now I fully understand why it is always sold out. My choice Chicken Paitan Ramen (USD 9,75) straight homemade noodles cooked al dente style in a whole chicken and premium sauce based soup topped with scallions, onion and a nori. おいしい aka. yummy. Curating the best experiences for you worldwide. さようなら CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
GPS Carlos Melia from White BIG APPLE | New York, United States | I am back in New York City, and this morning we woke up to see a full white coated frosted Big Apple. One of the nicest views of Manhattan, till it stops and all becomes black and muddy. But hey beauty doesn’t last forever right, so enjoy it and share it before it fades away.
I have been for the last 3 days, since I arrived back from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Here for the next two weeks, prepping for my 39th Birthday next Tuesday, and then on the 20th of March, off to Thailand for 3 weeks. Life could not be better.

Hope you enjoy my photos of White New York City from this morning, while I was walking to my favorite breakfast spot in Hell’s Kitchen, La Bergamote, to have my usual Almond Brioche with a huge cup of Coffee with milk. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

GPS Carlos Melia back in New York City | New York, United States | After an over 10 hours flight from Buenos Aires, I am back in New York City. View of the Hudson River from the apartment in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. Time to relax, gain some energy back and focus on the new projects and adventures to come. CM
The OUT NYC | New York, United States | Well it seems that West 42nd. Street area in between 10th and 11th Avenue (aka. Hells Kitchen), has lately been getting a lot of attention and happening. First the avant-garded Yotel, which I personally reviewed last week and loved, the new luxury apartments complex MiMA, and now the soon to open The OUT NYC Urban Resort which already is looking very promessing and happening. The project is forecasted to open March 2012, so we will have to wait till then to see how it develops, looking forward to stay over to review it in full. Formerly to be Axel Hotel New York, today member of the Genre Hotels group, which I must say after over 20 years in this business have never heard of, but excited to learn more about. But this is not all this complex has to offer, big names are already part of this project and others to join soon. The OUT NYC hosts New York’s most highly anticipated nightlife venue XL Nightclub featuring already well established and classic events like Rock It by Fonabaiovoss and iconic New York night scene names like John Blair. Today I was briefly introduced to XL but this weekend I was invited to come and check the venue in full action, but I can say that already got my attention, a slick venue with a nice central bar and dance floor in the back. So stay tuned for more. CM
